** Preston's father and, to a lesser extent, his mother. Dad's a capitalist douchebag who only cares about his sons as long as they're trying to earn money, hence he essentially lets Preston's older brothers be complete assholes to him simply because they're starting up their own business and he isn't. Never mind the fact that Preston is approximately 12. The most jaw-dropping moment, however, is probably when Preston's bike is run over by a car and his parents are more concerned with the fact that he "didn't take care of his property" than, you know, ''the fact that their son was almost hit by a car.'' They then proceed to ground him for saying that the way they treat him compared to his brothers is unfair, totally unaware that they just proved him right.

* {{Fanservice}}: Shay Stanley for the boys and [[ParentService their dads]] in the audience.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Despite treating him poorly, Preston's father's assessment of his son turns out to be correct. Preston gets a million dollars and fritters it away on junk food, a castle, and amusement rides for his backyard, showing no sense of responsibility or altruism with his fortune. That being said, his father certainly didn't help him ''learn'' responsibility. A kid who's only given a pittance to spend at a carnival is going to have trouble realizing just how fast you can blow large amounts of money.
** Quite simply, Preston acted like he'd won the lottery, having no knowledge how handle large sums of money--something he'd never had a point.
